Medication Errors

Medication error is the term use to describe an error that occurred at any phase of medication-use process. In 2008, a standard and universal definition of medication error was developed by the National Coordinating Council for Medication Error Reporting and Prevention (NCC MERP) which states that a medication error refers to any preventable event that may cause or lead to inappropriate use of medication or patient harm while the medication is in control of a Ahealth professional, patient, or consumer (Murdaugh, p. 441). Pharmacies are one of the health departments responsible for preventing medication errors because of their role in the procurement, control, and distribution of medications.
